After teasing snippets the track last week, Nicki Minaj calls on Young Money compatriot Lil Wayne to unleash her latest single titled “Rich Sex.” The J. Reid-produced tune premiered on Beats 1 as Zane Lowe's World Record this morning (June 11). The collaboration came on the heels her NICKIHNDRXX world tour announcement alongside Future.
